stock_6.jpgDo you have less than perfect skin? People with skin that has been damaged by the sun, age spots, acne or skin that has a rough texture may benefit from microdermabrasion. This treatment removes the uppermost layer of skin and dead skin cells to reveal a healthier appearance. The exfoliation helps to revitalize the skin and encourage blood flow. We will consult with you on the treatment plan we feel will achieve your desired results.

Microdermabrasion gently exfoliates dead skin cells from the surface of the skin. Patients may experience a slight warming sensation as the microdermabrasion crystals exfoliate the skin. The length and number of treatments solely depends on each individual’s condition.

This non-invasive procedure offers no downtime following treatment. As the new layer of skin appears, it will be more sensitive and require more protection from the sun. Use moisturizing creams to keep your skin hydrated and to help prevent any possible irritation.

Side effects are very rare and will not occur if properly performed by a qualified dermatologist. Temporary side effects may include, mild redness, swelling, minor discomfort and bruising. More serious side effects can include, scarring, changes in pigmentation and persistent redness.
